While we have dined several times at the Wine Exchange in Old Hyde Park Village, this particular visit didn't match earlier high marks. Tonight we were lucky enough to score a front window table across from the bar area. Plenty of lively conversation taking place and lots of seemly happy folks enjoying themselves. We started with a couple of glass... More

Went for dinner last week. Seemed nice at first. The mussels appetizer was really good. Just took forever to come out. While waiting for the app, me and my girlfriend both ran out of beer. I found it interesting to watch the two bartenders completely enthralled with their side work and breaking down the bar (this was at 9 pm... More

I live in Hyde Park, Tampa and have been eating at the Wine Exchange for years even before it moved to its present location. This restaurant has always been a staple for South Tampa, serving no-nonsense food, good variety, excellent bread and a great wine and beverage selection. The atmosphere is great with indoor and outdoor seating (the latter heated... More

It was not quite spur of the moment, but it was close. We had been promising ourselves we'd go out to dinner together soon...for at least year. We put the evening together earlier in the day and Saturday evening dined on what might be the tastiest block in Hyde Park. We arrived early evening and were immediately seated. The inside... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in for a Birthday Lunch on our way out of town... we were beyond impressed! The atmosphere is so classy and yet cozy and inviting, not cold and stark. The food was delicious and our drinks were perfection! Our server was extremely attentive and so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had our lunch... More

Sad this was my 1st time there because places are notoriously poor on New Year's Eve and this was. Atmosphere is nice inside but we sat on the patio. The party of 12 was too much too handle even though we had reservations. The menu is large & full of pastas, pizzas, & cream sauces. I was looking for something... More

We've been to the Wine Exchange in the past, and we always found the food and service to be very good, but our experience on our recent visit was similar to other reviewers, a big disapointment. The food does not warrant the prices of a restaurant like 717. It was average at best. Our server Roxanne graced us with her... More

As this is in a Shopping Plaza, when someone said, "Let's go to Wine Exchange", I thought it was going to be a package store. When I realized it was a bistro, we were offered outdoor seating, which was not clearly visible from the front entrance.After seeing the space, we decided to sit outside, as the patio was adjacent to...

We went to The Wine Exchange today for lunch with our dog accompanying us. We had been there before. The food is, at best, average. They say that it is a dog friendly restaurant. It has outdoor seating for patrons that bring their furry family members. It is also located in the same walkway as a very lovely dog store.... More
